It depends on the ortho and the dentist. My dentist knows my otho and would tell him my problems. So, the ortho may refuse to put my braces on. I just had my root canal done, no biggy, although it was covered under my insurance. Get it done, you dont want braces on a tooth that has an infection, you will have to get it done later any hue!
I have one more thing to get done, well 2 more, 2 fillings on 2 teeth that have seditive filling in them now. Hopefully if they heal, I will not need root canals. and a givectomy. I should have my braces on early april.
